Audible Editor Reviews

Grammy-nominated Complaints & Grievances is legendary comedian George Carlin's 17th album, and the 12th comedy special he recorded for HBO. On it, the gravelly voiced comic delivers a hilarious barrage of off-color humor that incorporates his well-known love of wordplay. After a nod to 9/11 - this recording was made in November of that same year - the comedian progresses into a monologue about gross bodily humor, and then a round of complaints about the various adults who deserve to be "beaten with heavy clubs", among other hyperbolic punishments. Undeniably funny and sometimes taboo, this recording captures Carlin's scathingly dark humor.

Publisher's Summary

If you missed the HBO special, it's all here and it's all hysterical. George goes off on every subject under the sun - and a few other planets too. Be the first one on your cell block to buy this great performance.

    "Funny, funny, funny."

    never any holds barred with George, he picks on EVERYONE, and EVERYONE loves him. He will really be missed, the world lost greatness when they lost him.

    RIP George.

    I have a lot of Carlin audio books, and this is one of my favorite. Witty and interesting. Only wish it was longer!
